A grandmother was left horrified when she found the mummified body of her own grandson in her attic two years after he suddenly went missing.

Zanobia Richmond, 65, from Erie, Pennsylvania, heard a bang upstairs at home and went to investigate. 

She made the grim discovery of the badly decomposed body of Dyquain Rogers, who had vanished on November 1, 2014.

The corpse had fallen against the attic door, and Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook is now confident the body is the missing grandson's, according to Erie 's WICU 12 News.

His mother, Carol Rogers, told the station: 'I just kept pretending like he just left Erie, so I just kept focusing on that, that he left here, that's what I kept saying.'

Dyquain was 21 years old when he was last seen alive by his grandmother.

He had failed to show up for his management job that day and his family found his cell phone, wallet and classes at the house. 

His final few Facebook posts suggest he was unhappy about something, with one posted on October 31st 2014 reading: 'I have been having the worst luck lately'. The next day was the last day he was seen alive.

One post, uploaded two weeks before on October 16th said: 'People are acting strange lately and thats why im doing it for me not them'.

Despite family and friends organizing a number of search parties, they could not unpick the mysterious disappearance and the cops were in the dark too.

I remember when I was a teenager and my uncle Louie passed away in his apartment in Harlem.  No one had discovered his body for about a week and I remember when they finally found his body and my family went to his apartment after they removed his body, the entire building smelled like "death"....you could smell his body through the entire building.  It is a smell I never forgot and one that I can easily pick up if I smelled it again.  How can this young man's body be there for all that time and no one smell the stench of death?

@Roots aka TJ What De Ras it's an odor that I hope to never smell again. When I was a child and old man was dead in a chair in his apartment for I don't know how long. When the coroners came to remove his body we children went to see. The smell was harsh and extremely unique. Maggots were in his head and hid body had to be broken as he had stiffened in the chair. There's no way not to smell a rotting body in a home. If she head the body fall she was close enough to smell it. Odd story. Doesn't make sense/
